Cielo Completes Acquisition of Property to Construct its First Renewable Fuel Refinery

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA - 04/19/17 - Cielo Waste Solutions Corp. ("Cielo" or the "Company") Canadian Securities Exchange ("CSE"): CMC, is pleased to announce that it has completed the purchase of approximately 2.5 acres of land with an existing idle bio-diesel refinery located on it in High River, Alberta ("High River Property") from XR Resources Inc. ("XR"), as previously announced on November 16, 2016 ("11/16/16 PR").

The idle, multi-feedstock processing plant, built in 2009, for an approximate capex cost of $10.2 million ("Existing Refinery") was capable of producing about 16 million liters/year of bio-diesel utilizing animal tallow as its feedstock. Cielo's flexibility to be able to use various low cost waste products as its feedstock will result in higher margins and a better quality renewable diesel. The end product previously produced on the High River Property was deemed to not be economic for use in Canada and only suited for export to the U.S. Cielo's end-product will be suited to be used year-round in Canada to meet the 2% - 5% federal and provincial mandates for renewable fuels that are currently in place. The annual demand for renewable fuels in Canada is currently in excess of 600 million liters, almost all of which is currently imported.

Cielo is now advancing its plans to retrofit the Existing Refinery with the Company's proprietary technology and thereafter place the refinery on production, making high grade renewable fuels. This refinery will be the first of potentially dozens of Cielo refineries that will convert, on a cost-effective basis, multiple different feedstocks, including landfill waste, compost, wood waste, tires, all plastics and blue box waste, into high grade renewable fuels.

The purchase price, set out in the Commercial Purchase Agreement ("Agreement"), announced in the 11/16/16 PR, was $2.3 Million ("Purchase Price"), which consisted of common shares of Cielo, cash and a vendor take-back mortgage. The initial installment of the Purchase Price ("Initial Payment") was paid by Cielo to XR, in consideration for the rights granted in the Agreement, in the form of 5,000,000 common shares ("Shares") of Cielo, at a price of $0.06 per share, that were issued to XR when Cielo's shares were trading between $0.04 - $0.06, on or about November 16, 2016. The Shares were held in trust for XR until closing occurred on April 18, 2017 ("Closing"). At Closing $500,000 was paid in cash and the balance of the Purchase Price was satisfied with a $1.5M vendor take-back mortgage (the "Mortgage") held by XR. The Mortgage is subject to interest, at a rate of 12% per annum, calculated monthly, and a General Security Agreement against the High River Property, including all physical improvements but excluding intellectual property. There is no penalty associated with an early payout of the Mortgage.

Don Allan, President and CEO of Cielo, stated "After years of conducting extensive R&D we have developed a proprietary technology that converts multiple waste streams into highly sought after renewable fuels. Our commercialization efforts have now been accelerated by the acquisition of the High River Property. We are now in a position within months to place Cielo's first commercial renewable fuel refinery on production at a substantially lower capex price than would be possible if we were to use a brown field site at a different location. We believe we have a game changing technology that will make the planet a better place for future generations."
